Last time out with the local Vespa Club. Felt the handling was a bit "squirmy". Sure was, all the air went to the top of the rear tyre.


Regathering stop outside a local golf course.


Team effort changing the rear wheel, me on the ground, helper holding the rear up.

^^^ Love the proud two-tone !

I got that blue DOD Sprint to my house, looks like it's sold and soon headed to California. After getting the stinky ancient gas flushed out of it I finally got it started up and went for a nice test ride. It checks out well, has plenty of beans - 1 kick start and the lights, horn, clutch, gears & brakes all work as they should.

Turns out it is a '71 w/ a later Veloce motor in it and it's got autolube. Somebody is gonna enjoy this one a lot!


Palm trees like California, smirk!


A quick stop by the Peruvian Consulate...


Yep, that's it


Then on to local protest hotspot


Then check out Lake Washington before home for lunch
